Hello zcylen,

Are you playing Silent Hunter Wolves of the Pacific or Silent Hunter with U-boat Missions?

Radar and sonar were not invented yet in the early years of the war. You will get it later with upgrades. I know the scope is there but it does not work for now.

Im playing SH wolves of the pacific.
and tried sometimes with the tutorial for manual aiming

is there a way to know the speed?
should I install a patch?

Yes you should patch to version 1.4

You only have to download version 1.4 all previous are in 1.4.

Here (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/2881085392/m/1901093545) is a link that tells about the patch and where to get it.

I do not do manual targeting so someone else who reads this maybe able to help you out.

Acquiring the targets speed....There are many ways to do it, but for a beginners learning tool I would suggest RR's method. That is to place a mark at the front of the silhouette or dot of the target, when the target gets to the mark start the chronometer, wait 3 minutes and mark the bow or dot again. Then measure the distance between the marks using the compass tool.

If the target does 1000 yrds in 3 minutes, then it is doing 10kts.....800yrds, 8kts...950yrds, 9.5kts....and so on.

Try looking through this link....

Look at the beginning of the forum. There are a lot of great tutorials for everything. Along with these, make generous use of the in game turorials.
